Growing up in Tower Hamlets, Emmanuel dreamed of securing a position in banking. After graduating from university with a BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance, at the age of only 22 he became a financial adviser at Barclays Bank which later led to positions at The Royal Bank of Scotland, HBOS, HSBC & NatWest and he is now a fully qualified financial adviser.

Founder of the Eman Effect, Emmanuel created a financial education company that aims to help people reach their financial goals, equipping them with insight and knowledge to make cost-effective financial decisions and in turn helping them break the cycle of poverty and constraints of economic hardship. The Eman Effect provides educational seminars to young people, workplaces and academic organisations and as a beacon of financial literacy, Emmanuel is on a mission to empower the nation.

A popular and captivating motivational speaker, Emmanuel has delivered keynotes and content sessions across a range of events and organisations such as Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan and HSBC, as well as appearing at last year’s UK Black Business Show. Topics are wide-ranging and include wealth management, practical financial tips for everyday life, bridging the UK’s racial and gender pay gap, and financial equilibrium within relationships, to name just a few. He delivers sessions on the basics of finance from the UK credit system to pensions, how to protect your assets and recession-proof yourself, and how to set up a side hustle and adopt positive financial habits. Emmanuel’s talks are bespoke and tailored to each audience and occasion, exploring not only the monetary aspect of finance but also the significant impact that poor financial circumstances can have on our mental health and wellbeing, especially during a cost-of-living crisis.

Bestselling author, Emmanuel published ‘Get Your Money Right: Understand Your Money and Make It Work For You’, in 2023 with Harper Collins and ‘The Ultimate Guide to Money’, published by Puffin, is due to be released in September 2024 and is perfect for young entrepreneurs looking to navigate the financial world and build money confidence.
